Wow. Overdose of bravery pills I think.

Of course, CX + Dollywobbler always equals success. no?


I'm washing my hands of this endeavour because I've got to get my own Citroen barge back to Wales. I shall be watching progress with interest though. And a certain amount of envy.

Things to note:

1. Doors and wings are all fucked. all new bare doors and wings supplied- so it is a tear down and refit shift.

2. Coolant is currently behaving. emergency water already packed.

3. the underside had been welded, but to a good standard- little to worry about there.

4. Engine runs well, is willing and gearbox shifts/kicks down fine.

5. Brakes fine and pull up straight.

6. Suspension is working well

7. Interior is LOVELY!

8. Do not lock!

9. Charging is odd?!

so tomorrow will mainly be fix door lock(if possible)

stock up on spare fluids

See if can get radio to work

Charge spare battery.

and possibly drive hame

With all this CX love on this thread has anybody got a spare temperature control lever. It is for my S1, unusual I am told because it is the type that is between the front seats but is climate control with numbers marked on it. It is an electrical switch setting the temp, the roof sensor has been checked and temporally bypassed to test the flap moves and all seems fine. The heating is set on hot only at the moment.

I can't wait for the next instalment of CX to Scotland story....

I still remember my first cx drive. I was only 17, had just passed my test in a Nova and drove round in a mini.
My boss sent me out in his CX25DTR Turbo 2 Familial.
It was terrifying!

Got it re started, and came off at junction 9. Now in Ashtead.

Have coffee and cake, RAC on way.

We'll see if we can get it going- failing that its tracks back to Scotland.

Thanks to all for the kind thoughts and offers of assistance.

Car expired on m25 just past junction 8. called RAC.

started again after 15 mins.

Drove it off the m25 at j9 and picked Ashtead as sestination.

good choice as leafy suburb to abndon car in and selection of coffee shops.

CX now on a transporter to get relayed north.

we got the train from Ashtead (picked a winning village:) to Horsham, and now on way to Gatwick.

22
.10 to Glasgow beckons!
